Our Partners

wave crashing on rocks lake michiganWe value partnerships more than you can imagine.  Our partners help us in various ways.  They help us to develop plans, provide technical input, leverage resources,  conduct restoration activities, connect us with children, collect data, monitor waterways, review permits, and advocate on various issues, and much more.

Below is a list of partners we work with regularly.  We also partner with various towns, municipalities, and government agencies across Lake, Porter and LaPorte County (too many to include here).  A hearty thank you to our partners! We couldn’t do it without you.
